Thanks to our Facebook page, I have had the opportunity to connect with and feature the artist Marisol García this week. Marisol is a DJ, producer, bassist, and singer born in Gran Canaria, raised in a family of musicians, who since 2018 has directed her own collective, ‘Pulsar Events’ a collective focused on Techno culture and environmental sustainability.
We have had the opportunity to interview her and we want to share with you the questions that we have had the pleasure of asking her:
What are your origins in electronic music?
I began to study music professionally when I was 16 years old (back in 2006) graduating in electric bass and starting to sing, although I grew up in a family of musicians and from a very young age they taught me to play instruments.
After a few years in music (having performed in musicals, choirs, philharmonic orchestra and after going through the conservatory) in 2013 I got into electronics singing in different clubs, discos, festivals, competitions … and well one thing led to another! haha I consider myself a very enthusiastic and curious person who likes to learn everything and DJing seemed like something super funny that I should learn, given my love for electronic music, which has come to me since I was a child (I was a professional athlete and trance was part of my lifetime). We always trained with a full trance in the pavilions, and I remember that as one of the coolest experiences of my life, it was a really exciting and beautiful time and without a doubt, it gave me many of the ingredients that make me love techno today.
What are your reference djs?
Nina Kraviz and Marcel Dettman.
With what style or styles define your sound?
TECHNO, in all its wide spectrum of colors and textures.
What kind of music do you listen to?
I love listening to everything, classical music, rock, pop, country, music from the 80s … I really enjoy a lot with different musical styles. All good music is always welcome. Trance is without a doubt one of my favorite styles and so is Synthpop.
What is your favorite club?
Difficult … I have not had a chance to see the world or see too many clubs, so I still can’t answer that question. But I would love to go to Europe to visit different reference clubs.
What has been the event where you have most enjoyed DJing?
When you live music so deeply, even DJing at home can be a brutal experience. But if I had to choose, I would say that at the Goa festival that we did last summer, the music was so loud that my whole cabin was shaking hahaha it was a very powerful experience.
In what format do you play?
I usually DJ with controllers or players, although I love to DJ on vinyl. I adapt well to what they put me on.
What are your projects?
Always with a thousand things on hand! LOL
Currently and since 2018 I have been directing together with my partner from Germany our collective called “Pulsar Events” with which we try to bring the concept of Techno to the Canary Islands, as it is known in Europe. That is why our events are mainly focused on foreign audiences.
We are very happy with the results obtained in such a short time and we continue to work hard to continue living this dream.

Big thanks Marisol, we hope dance with you soon on the dance floor, hopefully in one of the “Pulsar Events” in the beautiful Canary Island!
